Kona No. 2

I made this guitar out of a brand new Kona, I believe it is model KSABNE but the label inside is missing. It still has the plastic on the pick guard and had never been played until I converted it. It did get some scratches and dings on the back somehow but they are not immediately noticable. The action up the neck starts getting high above the 19th fret but since it is not a cutaway, it’s pretty hard to reach much past there anyway. The sound of this guitar is up there with the very best I make. It is beautiful and has a very nice abalone headstock inlay and I have finished it with chrome tuners and a sound port.  I am selling it on eBay for $399. As of this writing I do have a used hard shell case in pretty good condition available for an additional $75 + shipping. Sold - Thanks David!
